The new generation of microtomes from RWD are built upon market-leading microtome design. These microtomes feature superior usability with excellent safety standards for all types of sectioning applications. If working with delicate specimens (example being brain samples) the system will provide reproducible, thin, serial sections of maximum quality time and again.
Combining the speed of a manual microtome with the precision of motorized specimen feeding, the fully automated and semi automated versions of the RWD microtome helps researchers get consistent, reproducible sections time and again.
Easily set or modify set-points on a touch screen menu. The intelligent touch screen interface is designed to provide complete data visibility to create or modify all needed setpoints.
Precision is key
Researchers need to have confidence that each slice is the same over the course of sectioning a sample. The RWD microtome provides researchers that confidence. It has a precise motor stepping system to ensure sectioning quality. The system also contains a patented visual pointer identification to keep samples at the same angle to increase accuracy.
Efficiency built in
Beyond the easy to use 5’’ touch screen, the system offers several other features to increase efficiency and convenience. The sample position memory function and one-click reset
improve sectioning efficiency. Beyond this the side sample knob is ergonomically designed to make for comfortable operation.
Safety is key
The knife has a guard and retracting device to protect the safety of the operator. The built in handwheel dual lock system also enhance protection to the user. Last, the RWD system has alarm functions for remaining injection to prompt the sectioning process in time to ensure smooth cuts.
